An estimated 50% of Asians are lacking an eyelid crease. Among those who have an eyelid crease, there can be a great deal of variability as to definition and symmetry.
Some Asians claim that their eyelid creases may be more or less defined from one day to the next. Asians have more than one type of eyelid structure.
In performing Asian eyelid surgery in Los Angeles, it is important that the eyelid fold is placed to achieve a natural, appealing look. The fold is positioned differently in performing Asian eyelid surgery than it is when performing Caucasian eyelid surgery. When you choose someone for your double eyelid surgery in Los Angeles, make it a plastic surgeon who is known for producing outstanding results.
Asian patients also can choose their desired double eyelid design such as an infold, outfold, or in-out fold crease. Patients can also choose the desired technique from non-incision, minimal incision, to full incision technique. Dr. Kahng will give personalized recommendations to each individual patient on the design and technique based on facial features and anatomy during the consultation.
